Handi Biryani & A Wedding Suit

Author Name: Jaidev | Format: Paperback | Genre : Biographies & Autobiographies | Other Details

“Sometimes you find yourself in the middle of nowhere and sometimes in the middle of nowhere you find yourself.”

Life is a journey that takes you through all kinds of trials and tribulations which are beyond your control; all you can do is to respond to it.

Over a period of time the intensity of feelings and emotions fade and the memory becomes lighter. At such a time you may be able to smile, if not laugh aloud, when you recapitulate those bygone days. Finally “Equanimity” dawns on you in your late 50s and you come to realize that “There is a God who takes care of those who go to him, through all the trials and tribulations”.

Handi Biryani & A Wedding Suit is an enchanting and enthralling journey through life belonging to the tumultuous 80s, 90s and the beginning of the millennium, coming out of the author’s memory, fresh and aromatic as south Indian filter coffee.
